Domed Renaissance churches tower overhead, reflected hazily in the waters of the Grand Canal. Narrow lanes slosh with water nearby, bobbing gondolas glimmering with golden filigrees on their surface. Then you're lost in the piazzas of San Marco, where enticing osterias spill with Veneto wines and seafood antipasto. Next, you're stunned by the majestic Doge's Palace and the Byzantine cupolas of St Mark's Basilica. In the other direction, lovers snap shots on the Rialto Bridge and students talk art and sculpture in the fizzing bars of Campo Santa Margherita. Venice hotels promise to immerse you in one of the ravishing and historic cities in the whole world. Just steps from the door of your accommodation, masterworks by Picasso and Titian beckon from the museums, glass workshops will draw heritage buffs to hidden Murano and there are more handsome basilicas and chapels than you can shake a gondola paddle at. What's more, Venice hotel booking has never been easier than now, with simple-to-find aparthotels and opulent 5-star retreats alike just waiting a few clicks away on Expedia.co.uk.
The very beating heart of Venice is the historic square of Piazza San Marco. Venice hotels crowd the wide plaza itself, but also huddle into the tight-knit lanes that wiggle off to the north and east. They host some of the most central of all hotel rooms in Venice, putting striking sights like the Campanile and the prestigious La Fenice Opera House just metres from your door. Their style tends to channel the rich architectural hertiage of the once-glorious republic, too. You might find you're bedding down in centuries-old suites with original design features and opulent handmade furnishings.
There's also a lacing of luxurious hotels in this popular heart of the city. They often but right up to the Grand Canal, offering romantic getaways for honeymooners with balconies where it's possible to watch the gondolas drift by. Less-trodden quarters of town, like the Dorsoduro in the south and Murano, are great places to seek off-the-beaten-track aparthotels and little boutique Venice hotels, where individualised service is the name of the game.
Planning that exciting jaunt through the historical wealth of Venice is made even easier by the presence of ticket booking and tour assistance in many of the places to stay here. That's bolstered even by breakfast offerings. You might need to pay just a little extra for those, but the bonus is a spread of Italian pastries, hams, cheeses and fresh bread to set you up perfectly for days of sightseeing around the canals and piazzas.
A great place to start any search for hotels in Venice is the Grand Canal. It's the main waterway that carves through the very midriff of the water city. It's also home to some of the most iconic sights of all – Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, the exquisite Grassi Palace. Alluring neighbourhoods and coveted Venice hotels pepper its whole length. Down in the off-radar area of Dorsoduro, for example, you should easily find artsy boutique hotels in Venice, with rich histories and locations close to towering churches like the Basilica of St Mary of Health. Around San Polo district are clutches of Venice's romantic hotels, where the suites might spill onto views of the Rialto Bridge. Meanwhile, there are Venetian hotels near museums simply everywhere you look. To pinpoint the stay that's perfect for your escape to the canals and churches, Expedia.co.uk offers a handy filter tool to home in on the accommodations that fit your budget and requirements. Any jaunts to Venice hotels in the high summer or the early spring Carnival should always be booked well in advance to avoid inflated rates.
